The biological source of Curcuma longa is the turmeric plant. Turmeric is a  flowering plant in the ginger family Zingiberaceae. It is a perennial, rhizomatous, herbaceous plant native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. The  rhizomes, or underground stems, of turmeric are used as a spice and a medicin al herb. 

Turmeric is cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions around the world,  including India, China, Indonesia, Thailand, and Sri Lanka. The plant requires a  hot and humid climate, and it is grown in well-drained soil. The rhizomes are  harvested after about 9 months of growth. 

The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, a polyphenol with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin is found in the rhizomes of turmeric,  and it is also present in the leaves, flowers, and stems of the plant. In addition to curcumin, turmeric also contains other compounds with potential health benefits, such as demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin. 


These compounds are collectively known as curcuminoids. 

Turmeric has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for a variety of  conditions, including arthritis, inflammation, and wound healing. More recently,  scientific research has begun to confirm some of the health benefits of  turmeric. 

For example, studies have shown that curcumin can help to reduce inflammati on, improve cognitive function, and protect against cancer. However, more  research is needed to fully understand the potential health benefits of  turmeric.
